-year-old and her big sister were playing in front of the apartment complex you to see behind me when a come came up to them and offered to buy the little girl some candy. big sister saw that as a red flag and went in to tell mom. denise and her 3-year-old sister were playing outside of their san jose apartment complex monday night when a stranger started talking to jasmine. >> she started complimenting my sister saying you're so cute. she told her let's go the store and i'll buy you some chocolate. and she thought it was her daughter. >> reporter: concerned the 14-year-old denise grabbed her little sister and headed back to her second story apartment. minutes later this 26-year-old woman barged into the apartment and grabbed jasmine who she insisted was her daughter. >> she said that's my baby and tried to grab her. my mom tried to stop her. lady was pushing her. then after that, i called the police. >> reporter: when denise held her sister and called 911 her mom stood in front of the girls blocking for resfrom getting to her. her mom said she was also concerned flores might make kni
the washington post, and one from what we played on msnbc earlier on jansing & company. >> well, it is a big deal as it was originally recordednd mr. hoyer in the whip meeting this morning mentioned it, so if mr. norquist was taking a position that is reasonable that expiring tax cuts under existing law were not tax increases that creates a lot of breathing room for us and head room. >> a lot. >> but my understanding is that he has gone back on that, and so revenues have to be part of it, and, you know, when i talk candidly to many of the republican colleagues, they understand that. and they are worried about the revenues and not getting the cuts, and there is anxiety on the net level of negotiation, but most folks understand that when we are spending 22% of the gdp and collecting revenues lower than the eisenhower era at 15%, that doesn't work. >> congressman, under the gun today? if not today, a deal by friday? what do you think? >> well, honestly, i don't know, but what i do know is that we have to have a deal and we cannot allow america to default. if you are eric cantor and want to have more
enough to get a compromise and to get it through both houses. that remains a big question this afternoon, and -- and it doesn't seem like we've got a clear answer on really where that goes yet. >> all right. let's get out of the beltway for a second here, kate, because we've got a poll today showing 62% of americans now favor raising the debt ceiling one way or another, either with or without debt reduction. got a block of senate republicans accepting higher revenues, ie taxes, as part of tax reduction. are these holdout house republicans becoming more isolated, and are they begin to feel the heat to compromise here? >> reporter: it's hard to say. we've talked to some very conservative republicans about that, and they stand very firmly in their belief that they do not think this a tax increase should be part of any debt deal because they don't think that it's good for the economy, and they say many of them were elected in 2010 really basically on this point, that they need to get the country's fiscal house in order and not continue spending, spending, spending, that they should be reduci
business with the united states that is making a very big profit. china is going to make $300 billion on us at least this year. and they just revised that recently, i don't know if you saw. they said those numbers are going to be low. so we have to take our country back. >> what do you think of this gang of six plan? do you think it's workable from what you've seen? >> from what i've seen, nobody really knows exactly what it represents and what it is yet. but at least they're in there pitches and trying to make the big deal. the big deal is really the deal they should make. i don't like the punt. i don't like the deal where we kick it down the road for six months. this is the time to make the deal. and i have to tell you, the republicans have the cards. people might not think that, but the republicans have all of the cards. and this is the time to get rid of obama care. this is the time to make the great deal. >> i've been following you on twitter and you've been aggressive about obama on the economy. you believe he can't stop spending and that america has to stop spending. one of his belie
shows up at 6:00 to drop off some tables for a big bash coming up on saturday. >> to leave a cat by the shelter when you can see that we don't open until the next morning would be a death sentence for the cat. the cat would have sat there all night, we would have had bad news when we came in this morning. this poor cat would have been dead. >> the cat's name is cheese puffs. cheesy was very scared but has been a lap cat for most of the day today. he is going to get shots and be up for adoption next week. small miracles will be celebrating its fifth anniversary on saturday with a huge adoption event. that's why they needed the tables, proving cat miracles happen. abc2 news. >>> thanks a lot, jamie. this heat is just as dangerous for us as it is for our pets. abc2 is working for you with ways to keep your four legged friends cool. take along plenty of fresh water when you go for a walk. make sure to take frequent breaks in the shade and avoid hot ground. put sunscreen on your dog's nose, and pay close attention to make sure your pet does not get over heated. >>> tonight we are wor
those examples to test big philosophical ideas, justice, fairness, individual rights, property rights, the meaning of the common good, what is it to be a citizen. so what the book does and what the course does is to try to connect big ideas of philosophy with the arguments we have about politics and about ethics every day. and my hunch is that if we did that in our public life more generally, our political debates would go a lot better than they're going today. >> stephen: now i happen to think that the answer to "what is the right thing to do" is it is generally that thing that you least want to do. [laughter] it's the thing that never falls off your list but is always at the bottom of your list. and you're always looking the pay someone else to do it. is that anywhere in your equation? >> no. no. [laughter] no. but it is sometimes hard to do the right thing. and the challenge for politics and for moral reasoning is to see if we can do a better jonathan we are doing these days at reasoning, even disagreeing together publicly about big moral questions. so what i'm trying to do in the
this is the beginning. >> yesterday -- today is a big jump. we are in the upper 90's 4 highs. it feels worse than that. e humidity tends to multiplied things. officially we made it at the airport to 100 degrees. most of the time it was in the upper 90's. the airport did hit 100. that is where it goes down. it is not a record breaker. the record is 104 in 1930. the inner harbor made it to 103. the airport is down to 98. it is getting cool out there. 44% humidity. making 98 feel like 106. the bar -- a barometer is low and the wind is brazing. -- breezing. that is down from the inner harbor high of 103 a couple of hours ago. lowell, does it feel any cooler? we're down two or three degrees in the past couple hours. >> i have to get my winter coat. it is freezing out here. we're still feeling the oppressive heat out here. the relative humidity is fertile. the heat index over 100 degrees. that type of weather where you step outside and start sweating. temperatures in the 90's. also we are dealing with another phenomenon. we are seeing that radiation al cooling. things will stay rel
and more before there is any kind of a big deal. what's the move then if no meetings are planned today or no action over the weekend. you have the ability to come up with some type of proposal. what is the mood on capitol hill? >> it has ramped up over the last couple of days. there is a sense that this is a critical moment. there needs to be some kind of a deal that comes forth. as august 2 comes near, certainly tension seems to be rising. in the papers, proposes a tax cut or tax increase especially with some of the ways the gang of six proposal lays out the revenue raising. >> there's a sense that initially, when the gang of six came out, the budget chairman talked a lot about how it would be scored as a $1.5 trillion tax cut. there's some sense that even within their own proposal, the gang of six may use a different yardstick to measure things. >> why so long? why not especially when it seems incapable of doing something when it puts it into legislation? in some ways, they've had a new momentum be the idea of a bigger deal possibly still being on the table. we saw a couple weeks ago
like right now. it is interesting that after several days of tracking this air mass this big dome of high pressure that builds and tracks -- traps the heat underneath, now we are find -- finding the highest temperatures and heat index values on the east coast. air temperatures might be a degree or to higher tomorrow. the heat index may be up to four degrees higher tomorrow and the same on saturday. 105 in raleigh, 113 in washington. 106 at the korea. showers and storms, a few over the southwestern appellations. and that is really about it because this high-pressure ridge is so dominant. the air is so hot and humid and unstable we could see a pop-up thunderstorms tomorrow and begin sunday afternoon. for friday, sunny hot and humid straight through. it will be up to about 102. the heat index will make it feel about 118 degrees in many place. -- many places. by next weekend we could be in the mid 90's. if you go to wjla.com and stay on the homepage, you'll find this gallery of pictures. it is fun to watch and we encourage you to submit pictures as well. that is a pig cooling-off peri

people on board. it looks like right now they're headed in the right direction toward a big plan, exactly what the president wanted. lynn? >> brian, thanks so much. well, last night on "chris matthews," chris asked gang of six senators, mark warner what sets their deficit reduction plan apart from other proposals put forth by republicans? >> this is the first time we've seen a bipartisan plan that includes revenues, that, it really is comprehensive, it's bipartisan. it isn't perfect. but when the alternative is we're going to drive this country over the cliff, i think we've got to start with something that actually gets the job done, that gives us that comprehensive approach, and the fact that we had a whole lot of democrats and republicans yesterday saying, yeah, i'm ready to at least move to the next step, was a good sign. we've got to realize we're 13 days away from a default. we're 13 days away from an indirect tax increase with every american where their interest rates skyrocket and the government can't pay its bills. we've got to be responsible and get something done. if we can buil

of the substance of the proposal, it's too big. there is no time to get something this big done before the august 2 deadline. it literally cannot be passed through the senate in time even if everybody likes it. the other rainbow/sunshine problem here is the president and the senate agreeing on this or anything doesn't get you further towards raising the debt ceiling, it's not just the president and the senate, it's crazy town down the hallway too, it's john boehner's republican house, that likes the idea of the nation defaulting, that thinks the explosion of the economy might be pretty or at least warm for a second. they are not looking for a good deal or achieve particular policy objectives, regardless of what they get, they are not going to vote to raise the debt ceiling. the republicans who are running for president from the house of representatives, for example, are not saying don't raise the debt ceiling unless, don't raise the debt ceiling until, they are saying don't raise the debt ceiling at all. let's see what happens. this is how republican congresswoman michele bachmann's first president

as you know can happen instantly if some big player decides to sell off. >> obviously i'm not qualified to speak on behalf of the markets and what they will or will not do, but just my own judgment based upon all the various kinds of conversations that are occurring, are that we will find a way to deal with this issue. we do know that the root cause of our debt and deficit problem is spending is just too high. we also want economic growth. we don't want to embrace policies that we sincerely believe will damage the economy and hurt job creation. if you do that, then you lose even more revenues. so what we want to do is get a downpayment on our deficit and debt by getting spending cuts. i think that there are constructive conversations that are occurring both sides of the rotund rotunda, both sides of pennsylvania avenue. i do believe cooler heads will prevail. >>> what are the constructive conversations? for instance, are some elements of the gang of six proposal, i know you said it's not specific enough, it doesn't go adequately to slowing the growth of health spending, but are there co
